Assassin’s Creed 3 is setting pre-order records in North America, according to Ubisoft. The upcoming sequel titles hasn’t become the most-ordered Assassin’s Creed just yet but it is raking in reservations faster than any other title in the series.
AC 3 has had 10 times the pre-orders that Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, the previous most-ordered title, managed in the same time period (three weeks) following the official announcement. The new title has already beaten the lifetime pre-orders for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood as well. Ubisoft expects that Assassin’s Creed 3 will surpass orders for Revelations some time in June this year.
Ubisoft’s pre-order figures have only factored in North America. Europe, Asia and the Middle East (along with Africa) do not have stats available for the title just yet.
